HackCentre Lets You Pointlessly Hack Your Game Centre Scores [Updated]

A new application called HackCentre which allows a user upload any score they want to Game Centre is making its way to the Cydia store. The application supports every Game Centre compatible game available, and is demonstrated in the video above using the popular Fruit Ninja slicing game.

You will, of course, need a jailbroken device to take advantage of this application.

Personally, I really don’t see the point in HackCentre. Whether your device is jailbroken or not, the application takes a lot of the fun out of Game Centre and is only going to discourage people from using the gaming network. If you enjoy trying to beat global high scores and getting your name on the online leaderboards, you’ve got no chance now that hackers can upload any score they want at the touch of a button.

And if you do choose to take advantage of HackCentre and upload your score, surely the novelty wears off when you’ve finished uploading the highest possible score you can for every Game Centre compatible app you own?

I’ll be looking forward to an Apple fix for this one.

UPDATE: It seems my earlier rant about HackCentre was unnecessary, as the hacker behind application has announced on Twitter that he will no longer be releasing it due to the “overwhelmingly negative” response it has received.
